Marijuana

Cannabis, in many cases referred to as marijuana, has had a negative reputation for decades. Now, scientists have discovered the different health benefits of this plant – especially benefits of medical marijuana – which further proves that there are many misconceptions about marijuana’s place in society that need to be cleared with the general public.

The natural powers of marijuana, hemp and CBD are finally being acknowledged

by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer Cannabis has been vilified and attacked for nearly a century by industry propaganda, ignorant religious beliefs and controlling government dictates.

The most popularly bred component of marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), can be used for recreational purposes, to reduce pain, relieve stress and excite pleasure...

Marijuana Medicine’s Near-Miraculous Healing Powers Require the Whole Plant—Not Just One Oil Extract

CBD-only laws are a pretext to extend marijuana prohibition under the guise of ‘protecting the children.’ By Martin A. Lee / AlterNet A version of this article was originally published on the Pediatric Cannabis Therapy website. Ever since marijuana was banned by the federal government in the 1930s, proponents of prohibition have insisted that cannabis must remain illegal to protect America’s children. “Protecting the children” continues to be the calculated cornerstone of anti-marijuana propaganda, the cynical centerpiece of the war on drugs. How ironic, then, that today thousands of families in the United States are desperately seeking cannabis remedies to...

Medical Marijuana Helped Me Survive Cancer Treatment

By Jeanette Bokland Last November, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Like many others in similar circumstances, I’ve tackled much of it with humor and a positive attitude and loads of pharmaceuticals with varying unpleasant side effects. It has been an epic battle involving a double mastectomy, radiation therapy, breast reconstruction (a process which left me miserably uncomfortable every single minute), and chemotherapy — endless needles pumping foreign liquids into my body leaving me weak and nauseous and horribly depressed for days afterward. At one point, many months into my treatment, I was ready to quit. There are no...

Believe it: In 10,000 years of known use of cannabis, there’s never been a single death attributed to marijuana. “I’ve heard you have to smoke something like 15,000 joints in 20 minutes to get a toxic amount of delta-9 tetrahydrocannibinol,” said...
